Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and Royal Mulu Resort have joined forces to promote Mulu as a popular tourist destination under a special package.
The three-day-two-night package priced at RM650 onwards includes accommodation, air fares, airport transfers, tours of the world-famous Mulu caves and meals.
The agreement was signed by MAS Sarawak sales manager Victor Lim and Royal Mulu Resort general manager Alan Robinson in Kuching recently.
Lim said that Mulu was chosen because it was a World Heritage Site with spectacular caves and unique wildlife and was an ideal destination to promote tourism in Sarawak.
He added that MAS was always looking at ways to promote local tourist destinations through special packages.
"We want to package local destinations at affordable prices to help boost domestic tourism," he said.
Robinson described Mulu as one of the jewels of the world.
"Mulu is more than just a travel destination. It is a paradise," he said.
The package is sold in Sarawak only and reservations should be made seven days in advance.
